Chillin' 4 Charity 2013 on at Galt Gardens

That's right, it's Chillin' 4 Charity time again, and this year JDC West is dialing up the fun factor by taking the event off campus.

The annual United Way fundraiser is always a chilln' good time.

Spnsored by YPM Chartered Acountants, the 9th Annual Chillin' is taking place at Galt Gardens in downtown Lethbridge today, near the fountain area.

As always, the event raises funds in support of United Way of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to come to Galt Gardens between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to watch the jumpers, enjoy some food and make a donation.

Last year, JDC West raised $5,460, and they are hoping to exceed that number this year and further support the United Way.

People making a splash for the United Way this year include Dean of the Faculty of Management, Dr. Bob Ellis, and the newly elected Mayor of Lethbridge, Chris Spearman (splashdown is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.).
